A good solid meal overlooking the water. We had the scallops and the barramundi but preferred the scallops. The decor can probably do with an update though. The service was great. Tip: go at lunch so you can actually see the view.

Have been to the restaurant a few times and it was amazing. Unfortunately their bar food downstairs doesn't reflect the quality of the restaurant. Each share plate was disappointing, some good bits outweighed by the overall dish. Will stay upstairs next time.

First impressions of the main restaurant were not favourable as the decor is so plain, canteen style we decided. This was disappointing as it is in a magnificent setting overlooking the bay. However this was quickly forgotten when the food arrived! There was a good...More

I was there in October and from memory they did have disabled access and the women’s toilet was very roomy. Agree with Graham best to contact them directly as it is well worth the visit.

It would be best to contact the restaurant directly and ask about their policy on bringing a dog.
